Toyota Recall: Three Chicago Show Vehicles Fail Floor Mat Check

Illustration for article titled Toyota Recall: Three Chicago Show Vehicles Fail Floor Mat Check

Given the recent spate of recalls, we thought we'd check the dozen-or-so production Toyota vehicles on the Chicago Auto Show floor. Two of them — a Tundra and Corolla — don't have floor mat and a Camry's mat isn't fastened.

These three recalled vehicles sat directly in front of the stage where Toyota Group VP of sales Bob Carter told the press "Nothing is more important to Toyota than the safety and reliability of our vehicles … and right now we are completely focused on fixing the vehicles affected by recent recalls." Yeah, except for the vehicles on display at the Chicago Auto Show.

We'll give Toyota the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they're just waiting to fix their millions of customers cars first. But, one would think they would have gotten to these cars at some point since the recall was first announced back in September.

How fucking dare anyone make fun of Toyota after all it's been through?

They lost Jim Press, they suffered in the financial collapse, and they had two fuckin' recall campaigns! ALL YOU PEOPLE CARE ABOUT IS GETTING BLOG VIEWS OFF THEM! THEY'RE A COMPANY

What you don't realize is that they're getting you all these blog views and you're writing all this crap about them. They haven't made a profit this year.

Their new commercial is about the recall because all you people want is MORE MORE MORE! Leave them alone!

You're lucky they even let you bastards test their cars. LEAVE TOYOTA ALONE! Please.

The press said Toyota was perfect and they could have pulled it off alright.

Speaking of professionalism, since when was it OK to publicly bash someone who's going through a hard time?

LEAVE TOYOTA ALONE! Please!

(sobs)

Leave Toyota alone RIGHT NOW!

I mean it!

Anyone who has a problem with them, deal with me because they're not well right now.

(continues sobbing.)

Leave them alone.
